Jeep Trail is closed due to logging activity. Although the timber harvest appears to be completed, the trail is signed as closed. According to ODF there is no ETA to have the trail repaired and open again.

Fantastic Beginner level Jeep trail, though it being fall the leaves and mud definitely made it more exciting. Well maintained and beautiful trail.

The Jeep Trail is open and looking beautiful as ever. I've run the trail 4 times over the past few weeks preparing for Jeep Jamboree. The bushes/trees are all brushed back and trimmed. It's a beautiful trail this time of year!
